Default problem installing win2k/win nt or winXP as a 2nd OS

sponsored links
I've done this before, but after buying loads of new hardware and software & decided to go for a complete re-install of everything.

I have Windows ME on my master HD on the primary IDE, I am trying to install (have tried them all!) Win2k, Win NT or WinXP (winXP preferably) on the slave drive of my IDE primary.
Everytime I try with any of them, they reboot my system after copying set up files (a couple of minutes into the installation) then, it says 'NTLDR not found' and it doesn't boot (doesn't even boot WinME so I have to reinstall that as well)!
I have even disconnected my HD with windows ME and tried installing one og the above but I get the same problem.

Any help would be much appreciated. & before anyone suggests having just one OS, I can't, I need NTFS for my large video files (DVD Rips & my own movies) and I need WinME/98/95 because my Matrox Video card has no software for NT/2k/XP so I cannot output anything to TV/Video & they are not willing to develop any (even though it's only 1.5 yrs old!!!).

Thanks in advance

What are you using for the installation, booting from the CD or using the set of 4 floppy disks??
